What to watch: All eyes on TIFF

With the Toronto International Film Festival kicking off on Sept. 8, The Globe and Mail's Arts team has a primer on what films you should keep an eye on this year. They offer their top three most anticipated films for the 41st edition of the festival. Read the list.

The social scene at TIFF has become almost as much as a part of the festival as the films themselves. The Globe's society columnist Nolan Bryant has the inside scoop on the hottest invites and hidden agendas at this year's festival. Read the column.

Globe film editor Barry Hertz is looking forward to a fall movie lineup that promises to offer a "clean slate" from a summer movie season packed with "watered-down reboots, sequels, remakes and rebrands." In his fall preview guide, Hertz says viewers can expect "four months of Oscar bait and prestige projects and even some legitimately original concepts, too, free from the expectations of cross-platform corporate synergy." Read the guide.

What to read: Stranger by David Bergen

David Bergen's new novel Stranger focuses on a young woman named Iso at Ixchel in Guatemala, where, as a local staff member of a fertility clinic frequented by the world's rich, she has an affair with one of the centre's doctors, an American who is in an unhappy marriage. When the doctor's wife shows up, hoping to get pregnant, it is Iso who ends up doing so. But before giving birth to a daughter, the American doctor has headed back to the United States, and his wife has ensured Iso's child is sent to her. "Iso becomes the archetypal hero on a quest to another world – a brutal and divided America – to rescue her baby," Globe contributor Alix Hawley writes in her review. Bergen is known for his clean prose and startling observations, Hawley says, adding that the book has perfect pitch. "On top of its elegance, this novel also plunges the reader down an icy hill of dread and suspense. Bergen's world is our world, but made just strange enough to show that, as in the oldest tales, nothing is as it seems," Hawley writes. Read the review.

What to cook: Twangy peach preserve

A hybrid of a pickle and a jam, Globe contributor Tara O'Brady developed her recipe for twangy peach preserves after exhausting her sweet peach jam. "I aimed for something keen-edged and suggestively savoury that could be used equally on sugar-crusted scones as with charcuterie and cheese," she writes. The result is a peach preserve that will offer both zing and earthiness, which O'Brady says offers a "one-two flavour combination that sets the mouth to water." Try the recipe.

What to drink: Summery wines

It may be Labour Day weekend, and what many see as the end of summer, but there are plenty of wines that can extend the season. "A crisp sauvignon blanc, a dry rosé or a luscious red to complement charred meat – what's in your glass can add a few days, or weeks, to summer's vibe," Globe wine columnist Beppi Crosariol writes. Read the column.
